As many of you know, I have a brand-new book on Amazon called Blogging: It's a "Man" Thing...
Well, in the course of writing the book, I interviewed David De Witt
who has the blog called The Errol Flynn Blog
~and we became friends...
Being a mixed-media artist, I thought that I would surprise David with a suede cigar box that is a tribute to Errol Flynn...It has some names of the actor's movies and other memorabilia...Flynn was born on June 20th, so I included a calendar page and the number "20" along with some other pieces that I thought were fitting for this masculine piece.
But, when it opens up, inside is a picture of Flynn's personal boat called "Zaca." So, why is that so essential? Because that is also the name of David's publishing company! This photo was taken by Donan Raven and I ran it off on aged paper for a vintage look.
By the way, Errol Flynn died a few years after I was born and I just found out that he is buried in my hometown of Glendale, California. It's amazing the things someone finds out when researching for a book.
